Hobart is Australia's second-oldest city as well as the southernmost capital. Nestled into the base of Mt. Wellington, the city has a mixed décor of contemporary and antique that serves as a throwback to its profound colonial heritage.

A stay in Hobart means that you are engulfed in a rich history that has plenty of outlets with which to experience it. A tram tour of the city will give you both the background on Hobart as well as the current developments that keep the city evolving. Or drive your cheap car hire jump on a tour of Mt. Wellington and look down on Hobart from high above one of its most prized natural landmarks. Then there is always Port Arthur Historic Site, a now-defunct penitentiary that at one time housed colonial inmates.
If contemporary culture is more your taste, step inside the Art Mob gallery for displays of Aboriginal art and jewellery. The Handmark Gallery showcases the ceramic, glass, wood, and textile works of Tasmanian artists. And of course there is Salamanca Market, widely regarded as one of the key attractions in Hobart. Open every Saturday morning, the market provides guests with everything they can dream of, including organic produce, secondhand books and music, antiques, and more.
